You will learn effective and engaging methods to lead groups and organizations, tapping into their energy and wisdom and co-creating their experience of deep learning and high impact  results! In particular, you will learn a methodology that consistently works across all environments: in-person and online!

NOTE: This workshop is an advanced module of the Genuine Contact™ Program called "Whole Person Process Facilitation." In completing Leading High Impact Meetings, Workshops and Movements, you will achieve international certification for this Genuine Contact™ course and will be invited to join hundreds of others in the Genuine Contact™ community.

What is your experience of meetings, workshops or movements?

 Remember and reflect on your experiences of painful meetings as a leader or participant.

What happened?

How did you feel?

What made you angry, sad or frustrated about them?

What were the results or outcomes of the meeting?

Everyone has experienced meetings that had a negative impact and undesirable results. 

Bad meetings can be upsetting

 Now consider positive, high impact meetings, gatherings, workshops or movements that you have been a part of.

  • How energizing did it feel being there? How engaged were you?
  • How was the meeting led?  Did everyone have an opportunity to contribute?
  • Did you maintain some connections afterwards?
  • What results or outcomes were achieved?
  • What were the characteristics that made the experience productive, effective and impactful for you?

  Unfortunately, high impact meetings are the more rare experience.


What if you could consistently lead high impact meetings that not only get great results, but people also feel energized, connected and engaged in taking action!

What impact would this have on your own life, community or business?

Meetings can be joyful and productive

Leading High Impact Meetings and Workshops

Meetings always have impact, but not always positive or lasting. High impact meetings and workshops create positive, sustainable results. If we want our work to be successful,  then it is important to lead effective, productive meetings where participants really engage, learn and act with impact in the meeting and afterwards.


 What if you could consistently design and lead extraordinary experiences where...

  • You reach your own vision while supporting participants in reaching their goals. 
  • Everyone feels respected, listened to and heard.
  • Participants are self-motivated and take responsibility for their learning and contributions.
  • There is a sense of connection and community formed between participants.
  • Innovative, effective strategies and solutions naturally emerge.
  • You catalyze and expand success for your cause, organization or group.
  • You can even do all this and more in an online virtual environment!

A new learning paradigm...

Leading in a high impact way means immersing oneself in deep learning with a new learning paradigm. This paradigm makes it easy to learn and to stay in the learning process, which continues after the workshop or meeting. Within the new learning paradigm, we focus on conscious learning and conscious leadership which is needed to create the new patterns and abilities we need in this rapidly changing world.

Conscious learning helps us establish new behaviors and actions needed for the future, while unconscious learning reinforces more of the old which may no longer be useful. Meetings are only productive when people are learning, so in this workshop you will learn how you can use this new learning paradigm to support the learning and effectiveness of the people you work with and get the results you are after. In high impact facilitated meetings, participants have the leading role.

Our online learning environment for the workshop



The interactive live portion of this workshop will be delivered in a system called ZOOM which includes interactive video, audio, whiteboards, breakout rooms and chats.


Important: To attend this workshop your computer will need a microphone, speakers and a stable Internet connection.

This is an intensive course.

The self-organized part of  the learning in this workshop will take place in our online Learning Management System(LMS). In this system, you will find reading materials, videos, homework assignments and you will be able to access video replays of past live sessions. To get most out of this workshop it is essential that you do the assignments before coming to the live sessions, since these are designed for questions, discussions and group work based on your self-organized learning. In the LMS you will also  be able to communicate with instructors and other students from the course to deepen your learning and connection between live events.

To optimize the integration of your learning, the live portion of this course will be delivered in six(6)  3 hour sessions spread over 6 weeks with homework assignments between sessions. You should expect 1-2 hours of homework per week in addition to the live sessions. 

Please also read this Responsibilities and Givens document which outlines our commitments to you for this workshop and invites you to consider some of your responsibilities when taking this workshop with us.


Testimonials about this Workshop



Reflecting on my first Genuine Contact course four months later, I can honestly say it's been life changing.

The course helped me name and confirm "truths" about facilitation and leadership that I've been sensing for several years. It has empowered me to bring deeper presence into online meeting spaces in a manner I did not previously realize was possible. My organization had been struggling for years with how to keep the magic of our in-person meetings alive when we are physically apart, and now we have our answer.

Most of all, I appreciate the kindred spirits I've found in the Genuine Contact community. I've never been on a listserv in which every email was so thoughtful, fascinating, and heart warming.

Wesley Hedden, www.sarusprogram.org

The workshop you may find unusual if you have never done any type on online training before.  However, the models and methods used in bringing people together and getting participants to be present were very interesting and engaging.

A big advantage is that you are able to engage and learn with and from participants from all over the globe.  There is no discrimination and the method of learning and engagement actually forces you to expand on the use of your imagination creatively and positively.

The way the program of workshops was put together was very creative and encouraged creativity.

On the whole a very positive creative experience.
